DOM Restaurant (No. 6 of The World's 50 Best Restaurants 2013) - 09/12/2013.

  The Restaurant is in Sao Paulo, Brazil. 
This picture was taken at Avenida Paulista rightn in front of our hotel. The restaurant is about 10 minutes drive from here, taxi fare BRL$8, less than S$5.
Interior of the Restaurant. We were sitting right in front of the kitchen glass panel.

The South Americans take their dinners very late. Restaurants normally open around 8pm. Our reservation was at 9pm. We arrived in Sao Paulo at local time 5pm, after 26 hours of flying time from Singapore. By the time we checked into the hotel, it was already 7pm. After a shower, just in time for our dinner.
The restaurant has 2 Tasting menus, 8 course and 4 course. As we were too tired and had no appetite, we took a 4 Course with wine pairing, it cost just over S$350 per person.                                      
This is something we had the first times, 2 Deep Fried Amazon Ants, one solo and one pair with a piece of pineapple. We were asked to try the solo one first, the original taste of Amazon Ant.  They have very clear lemongrass and ginger tastes.
